Snapper practice sessions
The waiting period for the Quiksilver and Roxy Pro Gold Coast start today!!! Everyone’s been in town trying to get their Snapper fill anticipating the start of the event. All the round 1 heats are looking stacked… really looking forward to heat 8!! Get your fantasy teams ready!!!
Conner’s been practicing on the gold coast for the past week with some secret weapons he’s been working on. Before arriving in Aus, he could be found dialing in equipment on the long groomed walls of Rincon.
I expect Adriano to come out of the gates swinging, the current world champion has been on the gold coast for weeks now… he was there during the last few magical swells, scoring tube after tube.
Jordy’s back from injury and looking really really strong! He’s been loving his Black and White’s and Girabbits. If that latest edit of his is any indication as to how his year is going to start, I’d expect some heat wins! Kanoa is a contest machine, and snapper rocks really suits his surfing. Excited to see his debut on the big show!! He’s been riding a lot of T Lows, Rook15’s and Fred/Whips. Nat seems to always fly under the radar, probably one of the most underrated surfers on tour. His back hand is so strong and consistent, I would expect a strong finish in this first event. He loves the Rook15, and this year he looks to be sticking to that model.
